Why Okebena v.s. Round? Or Why Round v.s. Okabena? They are the same type of lake, pressure? water clearity ? Number of fish? What?

Round Lake traditionally is a better opening day lake than Okabena is for whatever reason who knows. It's not because of pressure because without a doubt there will be a lot more boats on Round than Okabena guaranteed. Right now the DNR nets had shown Round with a lot more fish per net lift than Okabena even though Okabena still had good numbers and probably a better size average also. Kind of like saying why is Sarah traditonally better than Shetek? It just is.

I'll either be trolling for snot rockets on Lime or jigging for eyes on Sarah.

Do you want the truth? Anything you do on Sarah will get you a nice marble eye! Casting, jiging, trolling, drifting, slip bobbering, but I guarantee you that a Barbie pole, and a Lighting MacQueen pole will catch more than my pole! wink.gif

I'm wondering and pondering between going to Lac Qui Parle or Shetek... Any suggestions on what may be the better choice this year for opener?

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
